    R1150RT Hall effect sensor

    Wow, my video has 15,192 views There are two types of end connectors, inline 6 or two rows of 3 pins / row. your bike, being a 1150RT, has the 2 rows/ 3 pins per row plug. After fitting, you can time it using the fuel pump in the tank, described here - https://www.sugarsync.com/pf/D2331532_223_6180416878 The plates I sell or refurbish have a lifetime warranty; they will outlast the engine " Anyone have an opinion on ordering this sensor from this guy? " I would love some reviews, because it helps me improve the stuff I make. This is how the new sensors get riveted: Dan.

    Wow! Beautiful! What a lot of work! 60 minutes to town and back. Medical care? Here in California, trees =fire. What is insurance cost like. Can't even GET insurance for a place like that here. Mega space. You and spouse retire? Lots to maintain. Plenty of space for a live in caregiver. How do you heat a place with vault ceilings? Fire wood heats you 2 times. Cutting it and burning it. Messy and dirty and sooty. Must be have a large retirement income. Buy lots of rat traps and deer repellent. You will always be busy. The constant physical activity will be good for your [failing] health. Count on selling 10 years after retirement to take the load off in your 70's so you can enjoy yourself

    Should I put an additive in my fuel tank for the Baja?

    PEMEX premium gas has 92 octane, regular one has 89, I have a 2006 R1200RT and I always used premium with no issues whatsoever, the govt. Imposed gas shortage is gone, and on the two weeks it lasted I was forced to use a couple of full tanks with regular gas (premium was nowhere to be found at that time) I could not really feel any difference on using regular gas, bike behaved as always....problem free....let your worries be what is the choice of tequila to try that day...cheers and safe trip amigo!!

    R1150RT Hall effect sensor

    Hi, Can you folks help me understand a Hall effect replacement on an 1150RT? I have read around the forums and while I understand it, I still really don’t. My questions: Is there more than one plug end possibility? Do I need to pull the old one before I order to know which one I have? Is the procedure the same as on the 1100? I have seen videos on it but not sure it’s the same for the 1150. Some people mention a “timing indicator” type light that is used to do the timing. Is this required? If so where would I get one? I have heard people turn it till the fuel pump turns on? Is this sufficient? Or just to get you in the ballpark then use the light? Is the Bosch from BeemerBoneyard going to last better than the old one? Anyone have an opinion on ordering this sensor from this guy? (Someone posted this on another thread) Thanks Mark

    Failed driveshaft question

    My hexhead (09) had a U-joint failure at 36K miles. There was a little vibration upon acceleration. Same for my 13 camhead (I know, I'm just unlucky). On that bike it was much more obvious.... There are earlier threads, not sure if you can search the old site.

    Would it make a difference if you are logged in vs a guest? I just viewed different posts while being logged in and the time, posted and subject were all current with the Home Page. Then I logged out; and as a guest the time didn't coincide. Humm....

    "09 1200RT no test ride?

    I had an 09 that I sold a few years ago with 140K miles. I picked up a used 13 with 30K miles from a dealer 8 hours away.....but it was a BMW dealer who had gone thru it, knew it's history, and no I didn't test ride it. I flew up and rode it home. No regrets. The bike you're looking for seems a little high.....but like what they say about used cars, you may want to have someone who knows the bike mechanically take a look, at least at its history.

    Home Page

    Chrome/Windows. When I go to the home forum page it will list new topics, the member that posted the topic and how long ago the response was made. When clicking on the time of the last response, which takes you to the topic and last post, I find the time that is listed on the Home Page does not coincide with the time listed on the last post. Sometimes it will even be a new post by another member. Home Page doesn't seem to keep up with the actual posting time. Does this make any sense to you Chris? Remember you''re dealing with a luddite...

    The service manager experience

    It used to be that any "Certification" came from the employee attending an official BMW school. This was an expensive output for the dealership. But. Things were learned. So, any "Service Manager" unfamiliar with the # of plugs in an R12 either didn't go to school, forgot, or doesn't give a damn. Sad. Certifications earned were displayed.

    "09 1200RT no test ride?

    When we did demos rides, the test rider signed a form, we copied DL (with motorcycle endoresement) and CC. The rider accepted responsiblity for any damages. Rare that it happened, but it does. If no test ride, follow advice above to try and get ok from owner etc. There are plenty of motorcycles for sale that have complete histories and inspection ride options. It is not like they quit making them. Best wishes.

    White vs Amber Running Lights

    Second for the Signal MInder. Also, Run-n-lites, Lite Buddies will work in the R 1100. Converts front and rear turn signal into full time on red/rear, amber flash for turn. You can convert the front to yellow bulbs or lenses and they are on full time except to flash as a turn. You can see the Moto Lites on the forks and the turn signals as running lites.

    Sport Touring on a S1000XR

    Kind of ironic, that this board was founded around sport touring, and with your S1000XR , you and I are the rare birds... I truly think my XR is one hell of a bike. Relatively light handling and ungodly powerful, upright sitting comfortable bike. Love it... It is the Ferrari of motorcycles where my Motus is the Hellcat...

    Sounds like maybe I should consider some depend under garments when I'm out cutting the back 40. Them John Deere tractors aren't known for top speed. I get your point, Jan. I didn't give it much thought because my wishful thinking, we're all gonna live forever. No, don't work like that?

    Wondering how often does the Home Page refresh? The current post, time and member signature don't always coincide with the Home Page. Either when I log in and/or refresh browser. Is it me, this computer or, is this normal? Insights are appreciated.

    White vs Amber Running Lights

    Hi Miguel, I highly recommend a Kisan Signal Minder for $108. Check it out on their web sight. I also installed a headlight modulator from Kisan also for $108. Both are installed on my R1100RSL and I should have done this years ago.

    White vs Amber Running Lights

    @Miguel, I was thinking you were talking about adding additional "amber" lights down lower on the bike. Converting turn signals to running lights is just fine as long as the lower output running filament is not on while signal action is on. What I do not like is additional amber running lights mounted down low. In my opinion those are usually brighter than signal lights and cause eye attention to not see the actual signal light. Over the years I think I do agree that the "Triangle" effect of auxiliary lights is a good thing to go for on a motorcycle.
